If you’ve been keeping up to date with Ashbourne College news, you’ll know that our art students are no strangers to receiving awards and accolades! Following on from their success in the recent Schools Art Competition and Exhibition at Leighton House Museum, Muxue Li and Amy Hyam have both been approached by local businesses to display their work as part of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s Schools Art on Loan programme.
The Art on Loan programme allows local businesses to hire artwork produced by students from schools in the area. As well as the pride that comes with knowing their work is on display for all to see, students also receive a percentage of the hire fee.
Congratulations Muxue and Amy! Here are the pieces that have been chosen, with the artists themselves!

A local business will also hire and display Amy’s double portrait piece!
This is the second year that Muxue’s work has been chosen for the scheme. Here is last year’s piece on display in our local branch of Natwest Bank!
